There is a place I am trying to acquire
I need to do more to get me higher
I want not riches or big fame
I am simply asking to daily call on His name.
Lord I am not good at many things, just a few
But all I need to be good at is praising YOU.

You knocked and I should have let you in,
In to my heart and my life, the one filled with sin
As each new day awakens, I do not always think,
Of the blessings You give with each breath I take.
Yet you send me flowers and sunshine each day
I know I should praise and thank you, instead I
brush You away.
I have no time to read Your word, or to even talk
I am too busy to take THAT walk.
After all, You know my life, my story
As I stray from the offer of Your Glory.
Yet You wait, in spite of my rejection
To open my heart and let You in,
“The Invitation” You continue to extend.
My life in turmoil and confusion
the sorrows and hurts like an erosion
I have no where else to turn this day
As I feel life and happiness slip away.
On my knees I began to plead
I opened Your book and began to read.
Then I felt Your presence and heard Your call
“Come my child, I will give you all,
“A new life I offer today.”
Beginning today I will open wide
My heart and my life, with You
I will accept… I will abide
